I would never recommend Dr Hema Patel to anyone.Please read this review before booking appointment with this doctor. I had a really bad experience. I booked an appointment with Dr Hema Patel for Dental Consultation and cleaning that was included in my Insurance. I clearly mentioned this while booking my appointment and confirmed the same on call. I went to the clinic, they did some checkup and they did not even finish my cleaning and gave me excuse that it cannot be done. After two weeks I received a bill with all the unnecessary charges, I didn't ask for any such checkup that they performed. Really pathetic experience, will not visit this doctor again.

Dr Herma Patel is an excellent Doctor that I can recommend. She explained everything the way how to maintain my teeth clean and healthy. She is very professional, friendly, and educate the pt to be sure that I know the stroke and style of the proper way to floss just to avoid having cavities on my teeth. Her staff are friendly and updated the appointment that fit of my busy schedules. Kudos to Dr Herma Patel and her staff. God bless you guys!

Appointment was timely manner and she is very caring. My son who is currently 8 years old, loved it. In the past, I was seeing different dentists, but in my opinion, she is the best. If you need to see a good dentist, she is the perfect one.

I love everything about her office. Besides Dr. Patel being wonderful, she has a terrific staff as well. She does many special things for the patient, like warm water when she rinses your mouth, sun glasses for the safety of the patient, explanations about everything she is going to do, letting patient know what the charge is before the work is done, etc. I have never had a dentist who used warm water, and have always suggested that because I'm sensitive to cold. I recommend Wisteria Dental VERY HIGHLY!! Bev N 10/2/17

Excellent 7 Star service from front desk to surgical chair. Seemless and pain-free post implant surgery; far less pain than initially anticipated. Sights and sounds of the surgical drilling instruments were the only distractions. So for my 2 cents of advise-just get numbed, shut your eyes, get noise-cancelling earphones (with permission) and 'enjoy' the procedure....?? Thanks Dr. Patel and the entire staff-GREAT TEAM!!

It was my First appointment with Dr. Patel and I went better than I expected. First I met with the office manager Ms Christina and she made me feel home even though she was on the phone when I walked in. Soon after Ms Choi the Hygienist received me back to for X-ray and cleaning and she was fantastic . Finally Ms Patel came to discuss my the findings of my X-rays and she patient thoughtful, respectful, attentive and made me feel like I was the only patient in the office ??????

Dr. Patel and all of her staff--Christina, Renee, Heather, and the others I have not met yet, are the best! Even though I live in Frederick County, I would continue to drive several miles out of my way just to visit Dr. Patel. I am so lucky to have her as my dentist. She is the best dentist I have ever thad in 68 years! And I have been going to the dentist twice a year (at least) since I was 5 years old! Her hygienist, Renee, could not be more thorough (and gentle). The entire staff is very personable, and I would highly recommend all of them. If you are looking for a wonderful, lovely, very smart dentist, Dr. Patel is just who you need.

I was incredibly impressed from my first phone call to Dr. Patel's office, where Cristina professionally answered all my questions. Today was my first appointment and I couldn't have been more pleased with the entire staff, their new and improved equipment, and Dr. Patel sat and explained everything in detail to me, and showing me all the pictures they just took, so I could see exactly what she was talking about. I immediately came home and told my husband I found a fabulous dentist for our family.
